    Yep, as a lot of us know, Lemon Pledge seems to be a reasonably popular cleaning agent for quick touch up or just keeping the bike clean. I used to be one of those who *may* have used Lemon Pledge, after all the Naphtha in it makes for a very good cleaning agent.

    While a little more expensive I bought a pack of the Armorall wipes toward the end of last season. I finally got around to using them and was impressed. They clean well, remove most bugs and water spots, leave a shine and don't smell half bad. One thing I did find out, you will need a second wipe rag because when first taken from the package they are a little wet and will leave behind spots. Depending on how much dirt and grime you are trying to take off of the bike you may use 3 or 4 wipes from the package of twelve.

    I am happy with them and they pack nicer into the saddle bag than a round can of Pledge.

    I have always been a pledge kind of guy, but mayhaps I will give the wipes a try this season.

    Apparently Lemon Pledge enemas are the new thing for the Hipster crowd

    Doesn't Amorall have stuff not good for painted surfaces?
    Anything BUT Lemon Pledge!
    When I "spring clean" I like Griots Speed Shine, a micro fiber cloth & elbow grease!

    Yea... I have never got on board the Pledge Train; so I can't comment on what I haven't tried... Once I was introduced to and happy with Adams detail spray I decided to use it on all my vehicles.

    This Armorall product is made for painted surfaces, it isn't the Armorall that we have all used for years.
